Re: If there were one engine I could bring back and covert

It was part of the lokasoft gui. But copy protected. And even if you bought it legally, you cannot install it anymore on todays Windows machines.

Re: If there were one engine I could bring back and covert

If there were one engine I could bring back and covert to WB/UCI protocols, it would be Marty Hirsch's Mchess. :D You know you can run it easily on a modern PC? It's not as good as a UCI conversion but it and loads of other oldies are running well I run mchess on my mobile android phone, works very...

Mac Hack VI or Chess 4.5

But with Lazy SMP and Syzygy support.
Just to see how well those ancient engines would do on modern hardware + opening book + tablebase.
If ancient I would prefer the selective engines, not the a strategy engines,

Ask Marty for the source code?

It's all we need to move these oldies into the 21th century.
I am in contact with marty on a manly basis.

I tried to convince him to port it to uci.

But so far unsuccessful.

If there were one engine I could bring back and covert to WB/UCI protocols, it would be Marty Hirsch's Mchess. :D MChess is great. But I think I'd like to try Socrates or maybe even better, Chess System Tal as a UCI/WB engine. Either of those would be fantastic...but so would MChess of course. (Did...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

I would prefer facebook messenger over Skype or whats APP chat.

Machines could be e.g.
Millennium the King that has 300 mhz arm cpu and can be reduced in mhz speed to calibrate strength.
Or fidelity on 68030 cpu.
Or Ed Schroeder chess machine 16 or 30 mhz arm

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

How do you let modern programs run on 68030 hardware ? I have made a cross-compiler for 68k architecture. I took Cfish 8 and compiled it for 68030 linux target using gcc. I wanted to explore a thought experiment, that if programmers circa 1990 had known about software advances 25 years into the fut...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

The software progress is maybe only there because the hardware allows more resources. Or do you think Stockfish could gain the „progress“ as you call it with 32 kb rom and 4-8 kb ram and 8 Bit ? So you are not honest, the software progress is only possible because hardware has allowed the programmer...
